IN THE SUNSHINE OF NEGLECT, Defining Photographs And Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 To The Present

  • Riverside Art Museum 3425 Mission Inn Avenue Riverside, CA, 92501 United States (map)

In the Sunshine of Neglect is a simultaneous two-part exhibition at UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography and the Riverside Art Museum. The show presents the title’s territory on the eastern edge of the Los Angeles Basin as an experimental playground for photographers, where nothing was at stake, so everything was possible. Artists and rising experimentalists have long used Inland Southern California as a laboratory, influencing the course of contemporary art and photography.

The show includes 194 works by 54 photographers, including Kim Abeles, Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Judy Chicago, John Divola, Judy Fiskin, Robbert Flick, Anthony Hernandez, Meg Madison, Alia Malley, Richard Misrach, Mark Ruwedel, Allan Sekula, Julius Shulman, Joel Sternfeld, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Larry Sultan, and more. It is curated by artist and UCR ARTS Senior Curator Douglas McCulloh.

We will meet at the Riversdie Art Museum, walk over to the CA Museum of Photography for the completion of the tour; and then follow up with a no-host fun lunch at Tio's Tacos, another short walk away.

Riverside Art Museum is located on the corner of Mission Inn Avenue and Lime Street. There is street parking along Mission Inn Ave. and Lime St. There is also a parking lot across the street from the museum on Mission Inn Ave. and Lemon Street. Tio's Tacos is at 3948 Mission Inn Ave, Riverside.

The Riverside Art Museum is about a 60 to 90 minute drive from Los Angeles, and we encourage carpooling.
